A Winter Wonderland Wedding

Last Friday, I traveled to a small town 7 hours north from Vancouver to attend my best friends wedding. Her now-husband grew up in Williams Lake, BC which is one of the reasons they opted to have their wedding in what I consider to be "the middle of nowhere" haha!

I've been a city girl all my life so going to a small town was a very interesting experience for me. While others opted to drive 7-9 hours up the mountains to get there, I decided to take a 50-minute plane ride instead (although it costed me tons more $$$). The plane was TINY. I mean.... TINY!!! I am 5'1 and I couldn't even stand up inside the plane. It was a small 9-seater plane so you can just imagine what the ride was like - hot, stuffy, turbulent, and for the whole 50 minutes, all you could hear was the loud motor. Needless to say, I was relieved when I got off the plane.


This is what -21 degrees looks like. Beautiful but incredibly cold. . . as in, the moment I stepped out of each building, my snot would freeze. hahaha!

Can you guess which bridesmaid dress belonged to me? ;P

Heading to the photo shoot site - the bride wanted us all in our dresses (with no jackets on) and high heels for the photos. We love her and all but I think i speak for everyone when I say that we weren't very happy campers. hahaha! This is definitely not short dress & high heel weather!

 
One of my fave photos - Williams Lake sunset.

How was your weekend?

LOL I've been on those tiny regional planes too, you can feel everything! XD At least there is no driving though. You look so pretty in your bridesmaid dress, love your hair! XD I wouldn't make my friends take off their coats and boots in snow just for pictures! Indoor pics yo. ^^

Oh my goodness! What a beautiful location for a wedding!!! I am so tempted to have my husband and I go take photos in the snow this year with our pups in my wedding gown and him in his tux. :)

beautiful place to have a wedding. i wouldn't opt for a colder place to have a wedding though. it's hard to glam up when you literally have to bundle yourself up.uhuhuh

Jessica said...

How interesting that the other bridesmaids are all so tall. =)

I agree with Kalmo, it's beautiful there, but the weather called for indoor pictures. Maybe in front of a big picture window. I hope none of you get sick from the experience.

When I met my wife, her family had a dog just like the one looking at you in the first picture. The poor thing was miserable during our summers.

Hey, did you try to catch the bouquet or did you leave that for the girls who are still hoping???

Moving is always an interesting change in life. I've always been a country-girl, but I always felt that I belonged in the city. Being able to hit 7/11 late at night to feed my frozen cappuccino crave or simply hop on the bus or something and 2mins. later I'd be at the mall. So I'm deff. excited about that : D

Anyway, thanks so much for the post and the support :'D<3 I didn't expect anyone to read the entry.. but I guess the photos speak for themselves. Oh well, thanks anyway! I really appreciate it! And losing a pet, is like losing a brother or a sister.. it's really, really hard. But somehow this time it was even worse. : / It'll definitely take some extra time to get over it.

Hun, what are you talking about?? You look lovely in the photo!!! Seriously :) But wow, it must have been freezing, I can't imagine how cold -25 would be! I've only seen snow once- when I was 10! xD It does look like a beautiful location though :D

MizzJ said...

Such a beautiful place! Hay I wish I can experience a white Christmas at least once in my life!

All that snow and nature looks beautiful! Not to mention our dream blogger! And I do spy those juicy rain boots! They were probably one of your best friends in that weather! haha will you be driving back or taking the squishy plane again? Looks like it turned out to be a great wedding!

i laughed out loud at the dress... i was looking at which one was the tiniest and i was like... ohhhh that's kym's lol! the dresses are lovely btw. did they design this themselves?

and that must be one TINY plane is you hear turbulence. so did you ride the plane back home? you're brave to have done such a thing though. hey, have you seen the movie the proposal? your airplane story reminded me of the movie when the main character (i forgot her name) was heading to alaska in a small cramped plane.

anyway, the place looks lovely and peaceful. it's definitely a winter wonderland.
